I don't think it is what UFC is doing rather than what WWE and TNA are lacking and that is just popularity with WWE going PG the buyrates are being effected by the lack of interest from people who were once willing to buy the PPV's. I don't think TNA has the fan base or has had it yet to draw big numbers in PPV buyrates. I think UFC is the newest and recent fad and the sport is growing very popular it is an alternate to wrestling and boxing that people seem to love and therefore the buyrates are growing each month for UFC.

That's kind of a broad question seeing as how they are two different products. They each have their own brand of consumers, so what works for one would probably not work for the other.

Thats kind of a hard question to answer because UFC and WWE/TNA are in two different catagories. WWE/TNA tell stories and the outcome is pre-determined and UFC competitors just fight to see who is the best.

ufc is forever popluar the wwe has been doing the same thing for meany years now sure they have a few new young guys comimg trough but its still the same kinda stuff, ufc is a diffrent kinda offering wile tna under hogan is trying to lift its game by offering a diffrent style of wresting from the way the wwe does the same thing year in and out but allso remmber as quite a few guys find out the wwe aint an easy place to work for that has some bearing on why guys look to say UFC,TNA and others that does effect the ppv buy rates to where UFC is rateing well wrestling is going trough some big changers because of the way WWE is run same with the new TNA.

They have unpredictable matches.Brock Lesnar vs Shane Carwin? Who would've predicted the outcome? Cena vs Batista? Everyone knew Cena would win.UFC has more unpredictable fights.WWE is to predictable now.TNA needs to spread themselves.They still aren't very known.When Pro Wrestling comes to mind who do you think of? WWE probably.TNA is still not known.It's like a televised indy promotion.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is getting very popular now more than the















sport of boxing and professional wrestling. Because people know when they go















see a UFC event they are going to see REAL'' fights and not FAKE wrestling















I know not all wrestling is fake the majority of wrestling is real especially moves















themselves sometimes the punches and kicks are fake everyone knows that the















WWE TNA aren't doing so good in their pay per view buy rates that's why you















see the Wwe coming up with all of these new innovative pay per view concepts.

They are very serious about how they build up their fights and do not use comedy in their programming! I think I read somewhere Steve Austin commenting on UFC and mention this that people don't want to see comedy used to build up a serious fight, they just won't take it seriously or pay the big bucks to watch it on PPV, which both WWE and TNA has done!
